Jason Hammett was nominated by the parent of a student, Holly Demuth-Jackson, as well as two anonymous students.

"Coach Hammett's lessons have helped my son, Brody, develop a love for science," said Demuth-Jackson.

"Coach Hammett is the best science teacher I have ever had," said a student. "He makes science fun and is still able to make his point. He makes learning more enjoyable for the entire class, and we all feel smarter just for being in his class."

Coach Hammet has both taught my daughter and coached her for 2 years. He goes the extra mile for his students both in the classroom and on the court. In fact my older son remembers Jason substitute teaching at the middle school 5 years ago and loved when he was their sub even then. Mr. Hammet puts the best interests of his students first and it shows in the way they perform and live him.

Jason Hammett is one of the best educators I've worked with. I think one of the reasons he's so effective is because he's dedicated to doing what it takes to engage his students, and he's never been one to sit back and take the easy road. The respect his students and coworkers have for him is a reflection of his work ethic and character. Jason absolutely deserves the Life Changer of the Year nomination.

rilynn burke Posted over a year ago

I’ve heard many good things about his class and how good of a teacher he is, sadly I didn’t have him in class. But I was lucky enough to have him as a school coach last season, and have him for my club coach this season! He’s an amazing coach with a great sense of humor but he never fails to teach us beyond our ability and has made me the player I am today. He continues to rise my level of confidence in myself and I am overall very thankful for him!

Angela Kolander Posted over a year ago

Coach Hammett has only been coaching our daughter in volleyball for a short time; however, in that amount of time it is evident how passionate he is about helping these girls grow. He is an excellent influence on the girls.

Mr Hammett has been an amazing influence on my children’s lives. My daughter has been lucky enough to not only be taught by him but also coached. He sees the strengths in each child and ensures they reach the maximum potential in all they do. Science has never been her favorite subject until she got to his class. Learning from him is fun and exciting for her. He is much appreciated by parents and students alike.
